IHC Merwede Opens New Singapore Office

Press Release
Thursday, April 12, 2012

IHC Merwede officially opened its new Singapore office at the PSA Building today.

The Singapore base will be the corporate headquarters for IHC Offshore & Marine’s Southeast Asia businesses, as it further expands its footprint in the region. IHC Merwede already has an IHC Parts & Services office in Jurong, which manages its life-cycle support operations.

The new venture will focus on promoting IHC Merwede’s offshore and marine vessels and technology solutions. In addition, it aims to secure building capacity to complement its yards in The Netherlands and add to the considerable marine engineering capability already operating under the company’s umbrella.

“IHC Merwede is not just a ship builder per se, but also an aggregation of engineering and manufacturing companies, which combines to provide solutions to its customers,” said Regional CEO Denis Welch.

The new office – located at the PSA Building, 460 Alexander Road – was the venue for the official opening party attended by HE Mr Johannes W. Jansing, Ambassador for the Kingdom of The Netherlands, as well as business partners and industry leaders.
